'Performance and Instructional Videos. 

 

"This section includes guitar tutorials for

The Hip , Jimi Hendrix , Eric Clapton , Dire Straits and Ry Cooder. I had to take into account space limitations.

I have included a limited number of performance videos to add  some perspective as to how to approach various styles.

"Walking Blues" is a classic example of Robert Johnsons approach to working in the Open G tuning. I will tie these ideas into playing both acoustic and electric Guitar. This will involve learning the composition and improvising for solo and ensemble purposes. This is a tutorial video, other related songs will be "Roll and Tumble", Running on Faith" "Paranoia Blues" and "Crossroads.

"Hotel California" is a fun song with great chord changes. The video will look at not only playing the song but more importantly how to jam on it. Guitar players can have a great time with this, not only soloing over the changes but how to play with a vocalist. 

A Paul Simon song from his first solo record entitled "Paranoia Blues". This is a basic format with a couple more changes. This will be directly related to other tutorials dealing with bottleneck guitar in open G tuning. 

A classic Neil Young song. This video will walk through various ways of playing over rock,power ballads in the minor keys. .

 This is a fun Guitar song called"Tribes" by Preston Reed. The tuning is CGDGGD low to high. I performed this number for the first time at The TLC Bistro in Barrie. I do venture into this type of Guitar style with my more advanced students.
